Actors Chris Pratt and Anna Faris grew up just 20 minutes from each other, but they only met for the first time in 2007 when they both stared in the comedy Take Me Home Tonight.

Next year, the couple got engaged and started wearing wedding rings, even before they got married in 2009.

In 2012, they welcomed their son Jack. Their love story looked like a beautiful fairytale until the reality hit – Chris and Anna announced their separation in their social media statements.

After the joint statement, Chris Pratt has remained silent… until recently. The 38-year-old actor shared his honest thoughts about his divorce with Entertainment Weekly:

Divorce sucks. But at the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much. And we’re finding a way to navigate this while still remaining friends and still being kind to one another. It’s not ideal, but yeah, I think both of us are actually probably doing better.

Anna Faris backed her ex-husband’s words on a radio interview by saying:

We have a great friendship. We really do. And we always have. And yeah, it’s always tough to envision your future as one thing, but I think there’s a lot of love. In what we do, there’s so much [unpredictability]. I think that it’s a lesson learned a little bit in terms of keeping relationships a little more private potentially, even though I don’t wanna.

Earlier this month, Faris also told to Women's Health:

We have a lot of love and friendship, and our big goal is to protect Jack. I cherish my family, my close friends, my child - that makes the rest of it worth it.

Since the announcement of their separation last year after eight years of marriage, 41-year-old Faris moved on with cinematographer Michael Barrett. The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom star is thought to be single.
